Long Shot - Article - ANSYS Advantage - V10 I2

Designing drivers for golf involve trade-offs. Drivers with large clubfaces and deep center-of-gravity (CG) positions have a high moment of inertia and are thus more forgiving of mishits, while smaller clubfaces and geometries can lower drag for faster club speed and longer shots. PING used ANSYS fluid simulation to design unique aerodynamic features in its G30, and new G drivers that reduce drag and enable the large clubface and deep CG to deliver longer shots while remaining stable on off-center hits.
